Content update will be available for PS4 on Monday, June 12
Seattle, WA – The dino-obsessed development team at Studio Wildcard today released a massive content update for the Xbox One versions of ARK: Survival Evolved. Players that can’t get enough of finding and taming new creatures will find five more beasties to track down on land, or in the water via the brand new speedy new motorboat! With this update, 100 creatures have now been officially released into the base game (not even counting bosses or specialized variants!), and the custom per-pixel painting feature has been added for structures, survivors, and creatures. Head to the island today and see if you can get your hands on the new speargun, maybe take a well earned break on the interactive toilet, or whip out your paintbrush and draw some wildly inappropriate graffiti on your base’s walls or sleeping tribemate’s face!
